  • The 16-35 f/4L IS is sharper than the 16-35 f/2.8L mark II, but the mark III is sharper than both. Still, if you're on a budget the 16-35 f/4L IS is certainly sharp enough for the 50mp FF sensor, ...
  • I use 1/(focal length x 1.5) which is the 'rule' I'm used to from previous APS-C cameras. But if I'm careful I can certainly get away with 1/focal length, and much better with an IS lens. As you ...
  • They should have lowered the price slowly but surely as the years went by. $3899 was one thing when it was the highest resolution 35mm camera by a solid margin in 2015. Not so much when there are ...
  • It's great for wildlife if you can work with the 5 fps and the shot buffer. Personally I don't find 5 fps to be a problem but I do sometimes run out of buffer space shooting RAW. If I could change ...
  • This is a false impression from pixel peeping where the 50mp files are enlarged more. At the same view size the noise is comparable but the 5Ds/sR are sharper with more detail. If you sharpen the ...
  • Base ISO DR is significantly better on the 5D4. The 5D4 can do a 4-5ev shadow push where the 6D2 struggles with 2.5ev. AF point selection is obviously better as well. The 6D2 is a good camera and ...
  • Note that DR at high ISO is similar for all cameras because it's dominated by photon shot noise. The 5D4 is an excellent camera that covers a lot of use cases (subjects and print sizes). I would ...
  • I am truly sorry you have to go through that. I wish the best for you and your wife in the time that you have left together.
  • Replied in Why High ISO?
    Maybe he's not shooting with a tripod all the time? Or at all? If the latter a tripod should be budgeted into whatever he buys.
  • The 5D4 has 30mp with a stronger AA filter. Photons to photos has published the DR graph for the R5 and it's 1ev better at base ISO. This site has their studio scene up and the R5 clearly records ...
  • Replied in Why High ISO?
    Any FF Canon back to the 5D3 can handle 6400 well. That said, any FF camera is sacrificing some resolution and DR by 6400, even the newest sensors. You're not going to get max ...
  • The saturation of detail even in large prints is addictive. The 5D4 and R feel like very good 35mm format cameras. The 5Ds feels like it belongs with MF backs.
  • The new R5 has much higher resolution and also has greater DR, so I'm not sure how you concluded that the 5D4 is equal to it for landscapes. Versus the 5Ds or 5DsR the 5D4 has more DR but 5Ds ...
  • Replied in 5DIV vs 5DSr
    This surprised me because for literally the first year I never even switched the camera to video. The 5Ds has numerous video limitations meaning you would never make it your A-cam in 2020. But the ...
  • Replied in 5DIV vs 5DSr
    Edit: I completely rewrote this reply as my first version was far too short/curt. That's not all there is too it. If it was then there would be no observable difference between AA filters of ...
  • You can compare them in the dpreview tool. To me newer sensors appear about 0.5-0.6ev cleaner. When you compare against a sensor with similar resolution the advantage is there, nothing else to be ...
  • Replied in 5DIV vs 5DSr
    I'm so happy to see Canon go with weaker AA filters in the R5, R6, and 1DX mark III. The 5Ds also has a weak AA filter by nature of the fact that they had to be able to cancel the effect in the ...
  • Replied in 5DIV vs 5DSr
    I have a funny feeling that Canon was playing a gray market game with these bodies for the last couple years of their production life. They didn't want to lower the USA MSRP, perhaps because there ...
  • My 5Ds did come with a Canon printed English manual. But I was so occupied with my new toy that I didn't find it until after downloading the PDF to get the menus changed to English.
  • Replied in 5DIV vs 5DSr
    I don't know if posting a store link would violate any rules. I used Deals All Year (deals-all-year). In general I would look for a US seller with a very high score (>99%), US stock and shipping ...
